Abstract acceptance started
Today we have started with the abstract acceptance notification process. Because of the high number of MECC + IMA abstracts (~1680) and because of the longer submission and shorter evaluation periods, that process will take about one week.
All abstract rejections were communicated earlier.
Please wait for your personal abstract acceptance e-mail in the coming week. Please contact us for an earlier confirmation only if you really need it urgently.

Music & sport in MECC2010

Besides the scientific meetings, the MECC2010 Organisers will offer the opportunity to enjoy a whole range of programmes for physical and cultural activities. We do hope to meet you on these unforgettable events.


IMA2010 Conference Choir - Come and join!

Motto: Everyone who enjoys singing and joins others in this activity, is a choir singer...

We would like to set up the IMA2010 Conference Choir, and all the conference attendants are invited to participate.

Detailed invitation

We plan to learn three pieces of music, to be performed at the closing ceremony (scheduled at 16.45, 27/08/2010, Friday). You can download the scores of the selected pieces from below as pdf files.

Please send a short notice to Robert Hohol if you want to join that choir, and please indicate also your voice type (If you happened to know... :-) ):


Female voices:
Soprano, Alto

Male voices:
Tenor, Bass

Scores - 13th century canon - VIDEO
Scores - German madrigal - VIDEO
Scores - Hungarian folk song - VIDEO1, VIDEO2

Additionally we cordially invite you for a joint short singing on the Opening Ceremony, where another traditional (and easy to learn...) Hungarian folk song will be performed. The title of this song is "Spring wind", in Hungarian "Tavaszi szél" (Please click the title of the song for the video).


Play your instrument for your friends and colleagues!

We encourage also those who play an instrument and want to share their music with the Congress participants in a short (5-15 minutes) informal performance during the breaks and/or poster sessions to announce Robert Hohol.

If you cannot take your own instrument with you and you want to borrow one on-site please let us know.

The musical coordinator of IMA2010 will doing her best in finding a proper insturment for you. (A short piano will permanently be at the conference site.)
